OK… I admit it… I’m a RAT fan! There’s something way-cool about a vehicle that was produced through blood, sweat & tears in someone’s back yard with available parts. I recently attended the Southeastern Truck Nationals and spotted this beauty. It’s a 1941 Chevrolet truck with a 4″ chop, a custom bed, a 1935 grill and Caddy tail lights. Pretty sweet!
What kind of a crazy person would sell a perfectly running, late model sports car in order to buy a 46-year-old truck with surface rust, a hodge-podge paint job, no power steering, crappy drum brakes, and comparatively meager performance? Well, take a look at the guy in the photo below! I made a cross-state trip this weekend with my bud Scooter to pick up a vehicle that I’ve wanted for a long time. I searched for a long while for this ’66 Chevrolet C10 (Craigslist and eBay have become my best friends) and all I can say is… GOTCHA! I LOVE this truck… and I’m about to spend some quality time getting to know it really well. Stay tuned.
